I dunno, I've seen other boards that got too many stickies.  It's a fine line to walk. But it could just be linked into the master 2017 thread

In the master thread is a good idea, that way most people interested in the contest will eventually stumble on this. Otherwise, for those who know, you google it and it will always be on top.

Another fun fact, rdrunner could win any contest that he feels like. I wonder if any Nintendo game is too hard for him.

Damn the name changes. Those are some fun wild goose chases. Please let me know if you see any retired/duped names

More fun facts:

Dennis Fleaman aka dev(2) is the only banned winner
Megamanfan and Dennis Fleaman are the only two winners who had literally ZERO competition those respective weeks.  Obviously the contest has come a long ways...

Now I feel motivated to get back to participating more.

The contests have definitely picked up this year compared to previous years, although I would have loved to have been there when the likes of Miss Clawful, rdrunner and Doug were still competing. Miss Clawful was a fellow fan of Ninja Gaiden III.

Here's a breakdown of each year, using average post count per thread.  Interesting to see how interest started to gain steam in 2012.  I think the introduction of the tournament played a part in that.

Miss Clawful was easily the greatest female NES player to ever grace this site.
I miss having her around.

I love that game. Sadly, I feel I didn't quite loop the game enough times during that week.
I had dropped it at that meagre 700K score, but then you pushed me to go and break 1 million points. It was fun.
Breaking 10 millions would have been possible if I had put in the effort. Maybe some next time.

Bert said that even more points were possible. Did you ever beat his score?

I was 2nd in Bomberman in 2015 ... the winner that week was Vectrex280996. Everything else looks correct for me.

I see a few wins of mine that I will have to come out of retirement to defend should they come up again!

Oops, looks like arch posted the puzzle standings at the end, not the weekly chart

I'll make both corrections tonight

This makes me want to come back! Maybe in 2017. Also reminds me of the all-time points leaderboard I created once. Fun fact: when I made that, Guillavoie had more points then the 2nd, 3rd and 4th place players on that leaderboard combined.... (By exactly one point!)

While we're at it, I think lospunchados and I should get a shared 1st place along with 2legit28bit for the 2012 Golf contest, we all had -14 and earned an equal number of points

Seriously, looking at the list is awesome, it helps remembering a lot of things and put them in perspective as well. I need to post some more thoughts when I got a minute to do so.
